Authorities were called to a one-vehicle rollover accident this afternoon between Scottsbluff and Mitchell that left one person dead and another injured.
The accident involving a pickup was reported on Highway 26 just east of Sunflower Oil Road at about 12:15 p.m., with Scotts Bluff County Sheriffs’ Deputies, Nebraska State Troopers, Mitchell Fire and Valley Ambulance responding.
Officials with the Sheriff’s Office tell KNEB News preliminary examination of the scene indicated the pickup was apparently westbound when it went into the median, over-corrected, then rolled, with neither occupant restrained.
A male was said to be deceased at the scene, and a female was transported to Regional West Medical Center.
The names of those involved and additional details have yet to be released.
